YEREVAN. – Holding government sessions behind closed doors does not do away with the transparency of government activities.
The Minister of Justice, Davit Harutyunyan, on Tuesday told the abovementioned to reporters at the National Assembly of Armenia.
“Government decisions shall be publicized; we definitely do that,” he said. “We are proposing to hold the discussion of only the actual matter behind closed doors in the government. Otherwise, a discussion does not take place; disputes go out of the government session. That’s why people are uneasy about publicly presenting their disputes.”
Harutyunyan added that unlike the current government sessions, the forthcoming ones will last only one hour, as of April.
“We will have a much more relaxed discussion if we discuss in a closed room, not in front of a video camera,” he added.
